NIBS Exhibition – Demo Trees

During the Exhibition last weekend we worked on a few trees as a sort of rolling demo for the public to watch. Sadly I didn’t always get an after photo. I can Hear Phil saying, ‘You Dick!!’

Here’s a few shots I did take.

Ben’s Blue Cedar that fell off the back of a lorry! Really!! Before


Prospective New Member Jonny’s Spruce just bought from the Nursery

After, not fine wired just basic selection and thinking about health of the tree.

Phil’s Scots Pine before no after!

Harry’s big Elm before, no after sadly as this got a major pruning 🙂

Ryan Neil Willowbog Bonsai Demo Video Part 1

I sat down yesterday morning to try and edit the demo day video with Ryan at Willowbog into something shorter without missing out the interesting bits. That proved to be a hard task! Ryan keeps up the commentary, questions, and stories pretty much the whole way thorough! I have therefore got Four parts to share with you totalling 3 1/2 hours of footage! I’ll share as I get them uploaded.

This is a lot of viewing and I know that many will not want to be bothered wading through it, however, others have asked to see the complete session. Down the line I might upload some of the individual learning moments or pearls of wisdom given by Ryan.

I had a nightmare with the video camera and was missing the first few hours of footage but thankfully Phil the fingers had it recorded on our backup/closeup camera and I have edited both together.
